The west


The sun shi­ning abo­ve Isfjord, mir­ror-image like calm water, that’s how we star­ted, and of cour­se the thought was not far to do some­thing unu­su­al straigh­ta­way, making good use of the fine wea­ther – that was, any­way, part of the idea of „advan­ced Spits­ber­gen“. Get­ting away from that well-trod­den path.

So off we went to the expo­sed outer coast of Prins Karls For­land, hiking back across the rela­tively nar­row island. Sun­ny views from rare per­spec­ti­ves.

Then we went on to spend some fine days in Kongsfjord – life was defi­ni­te­ly bet­ter the­re than out at sea during tho­se win­dy days. And when you spend more than just one day in a cer­tain fjord, then it kind of beco­mes home over time, you are get­ting used to the sce­n­ery, you start to reco­gni­ze indi­vi­du­al moun­ta­ins with all their cha­rac­te­ristics – a very plea­sant pro­cess that takes time, which we could easi­ly afford.
